Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Family Issues!!!

i have an amazing Fiance that i love deeply.... his family not so much . They are very judgemental and just plain mean sometimes. My mother passed away when i was 9, Her name was Jean, no matter what they say that will be my daughters middle name. My fiance totally agrees... now the issue i'm having is i really like the name Morin Jean Cammarn (Cammarn is pronounced like Cameron). We thought we had decided that was the final name but nobody in his family likes the name becuase they are worried about people calling our daughter "moron"...this seems ridiculous to me, i believe that if children want to make fun of her they will come up with something either way, so they want us to change the spelling so that "Moron" is less likely to be thought of...I know its just the spelling but it makes me sad that they would even ask. We dont get along to well so i feel like if i dont change it they might be upset with me.... should i change the spelling just to keep the peace?

NO! naming a child is your responsibility. Its something that is just you and your fiance's decision. I personally wouldnt change it for anything. They will get over it and except it as not their place eventually. We named our daughter Maddison last year.. and it was mentioned by a few people that they though that the spelling was weird but I just came back with.. I wanted something different thanks =) I hope that this helps some. I just think that if you want to spell it a certain way then you should.. if not you just may regret it later..good luck =)

Were your future in-laws there when you were doing the baby dance?  No.  So who are they to give you grief over what you want to name YOUR child?  I suggest telling them that you're going to reveal your child's name when she is born, and not sooner.  That way they can't try to influence your decision on her name, and it is already on a birth certificate. ;)

First off this is your child not your fiances familys child. im sure they have their own childern and when it came to what they wanted they stuck to it. You spell your babies name anyway you feel is right. they will not like or dislike your child any more or less. they will love her just they same. and if they dont it shows you what kind of person they are.
